So far during my ten years in Japan I have tended to focus on things that annoy me about my life here. Some of them are universal, and some more specific to Japan or Sendai. I’m sure everyone has their own list.
However, recently I have found myself appreciating my life here. I really do feel at home, and enjoy almost everything I do.
Keeping that in mind makes the small annoying things much less important.
I just wanted this on the record in case people had the wrong impression from the amount of moaning I do on debito.org and other websites.
(I took this photo myself earlier this summer, by the way)
